You will be collected from your hotel at an agreed time for the drive to St.Michael’s Mount, your guide pointing out places of interest and telling some of the history and stories of Cornwall on the route. Admission is included in your tour price. This former monastery dates back to the 8th century and has been owned by the same family since 1650! The castle is spectacular and the sea views are some of the best in the UK.
